Re: Guide: GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 with ATI 6870 - Clean Lion Install
If you are using the DSDT, you shouldn't need to do anything else except run MB selecting UserDSDT option (and Trim for the ssd). Try booting with -v verbose mode to see where it hangs.thehadgi said:So here goes my first post! heh
Ok finally got initial install and ssd errors fixed. now i'm having trouble with my amd sapphire radeon 6870. i've tried doing the duckweed string in my chameleon.plist, and also modifying the ati6000 kext (didn't do anything).
The issue is that if i leave GraphicsEnabler/PCIRootUID=0, I can boot fine. But The computer won't really see my GPU. It says it's plugged in the gigabyte mobo (ga-z68x-ud3h-b8), but says it only has 3 megs of vram, and the only resolution I can have is 1200x768
If I turn GraphicsEnabler=Yes, I'll get a freeze at the spinning apple white screen. Well, the circle thingy doesn't freeze, but it never progresses past that point. I've been trying everything I can find and nothing seems to work/get OS X to play nicely with the card. (Hooked up using DVI)
anything that strikes you guys that I'm doing wrong?
EDIT 1: Used multi-beast to repair permissions etc, and now it's freezing on a white screen with just a pointer, for both Yes/No/1/0. Gah that's worse than before
